Battle Of Marengo and Steeler, both 20-1 with Coral for next year’s Investec Derby, head the same firm’s betting for Saturday’s Racing Post Trophy at 3-1 and 4-1 respectively, following the latest entry stage for the season’s final Group One. Trading Leather is next in the betting at 9-2, ahead of supplementary entries, Kingsbarns, 6-1, and Van Der Neer, 7-1.
“The Racing Post Trophy has been an excellent pointer to the following year’s Classics in recent seasons, and although Saturday’s winner will not displace Dawn Approach at the head of the Qipco 2,000 Guineas betting, the Doncaster victor could certainly shake up the Investec Derby market,” Coral’s David Stevens told betrescue.com
